Officials in German have told retailers in six states to stop selling Red Bull Cola after trace of cocaine was found in the energy drink.
A test, which was conducted by officials in North Rhine-Westphalia, found 0.4 micrograms per liter of the illegal substance in the drink.
Although the level is too low to pose a health risk, authorities still ban the drink amid concerns over possible narcotics law violations.
Germany’s Federal Institute for Rick Assessment is planning to produce a more detailed report on Wednesday.
Red Bull released a statement that said the company did its own test and found no trace of cocaine in the drink.
